Build a Pool+ Conference

Hosted by Total Aquatic Programming LLC Supported by USA Swimming

'Programming Precedes Design'

We prepare the consumer to know what questions to ask when working with aquatic professionals. We can help to turn your Pool(s) into an Aquatic Business for a functional & sustainable bottom line. You will learn the

WHAT - WHY - WHO - HOW of your pool project.

  • What is an Aquatic Business?
  • Why do you want to build an Aquatic Business?
  • Who will be on your project team?
  • How to design, develop, and deliver water programming

Build it and they will come, or will they? If you build a beautiful facility and program, it like we did in the 60's you could be in trouble. Which is why TAP LLC is cultivating the motto 'Programming Precedes Design'. We must analyze the current programs to see if they are truly meeting the safety, health, and wellness needs of our communities. The same goes for analyzing how pools are built. You need to do due- diligence and learn what questions to ask so you can build the right size of aquatic facility to meet the needs of your community.


· Want to know the cost to build?

·    Want to know the cost to operate?

These are just some of the answers you will get by attending the Build A Pool+ Conference. The presenters, Mick and Sue Nelson, of TAP LLC and Kevin Post, of Counsilman Hunsaker will lead the attendees through the steps of building a pool project.

Total Aquatic Programming LLC is known for designing, developing, and delivering the methodology of the 4 Pillars for a functional and sustainable Aquatic Facility. It is easy to justify the importance of implementing the 4 pillars when you practiced the method day-in and day-out. The BAP presenters have the experience to share their knowledge not just giving you concepts.


This is not just a Build a Pool Conference, but the BAP information will play a major part in your success. This conference will be conducted, 3 full days to deliver more essential info. It will be a conference that is both unique and cutting edge, discussing feasibility, fundraising, program planning and equipment options.
